  1. Finally a week after coming home I am catching up on your posts. I enjoyed reading each one as usual even if I failed to comment. It is good to be pain free and back to normal again.

  2. I never know what to do. There’s a ‘table’ of homeless men where I work, they just hang on the riverbank and drink. I’ve given them cigarettes before but not money. I feel for the homeless in Ireland though, the cold would be awful. I guess it’s the old ‘teach a man to fish’ scenario.

  3. I don’t think there is a definitive answer. In England, the city council in Bristol (according to their posters) provide enough accommodation for all homeless people. I don’t know what impact the programme has had. Some people just want their own company.

    Michael says the man in the bookshop door has become progressively more ragged in his appearance over the past year.
